Philadelphia, PA - Executive Chef Paolo Dorigato brings his lifetime of culinary passion to each restaurant, driven by his upbringing in Trentino, Italy, coupled with international experience at legendary restaurants, including Le Cirque and Cipriani.
Dolce Italian at The W Hotel Philadelphia
The internationally recognized hospitality group known for its authentic and unique restaurant and cocktail bar experiences is proud to announce the opening of Dolce Italian – the hospitality group’s second restaurant concept to hit Philadelphia. Bringing elevated yet approachable Italian cuisine to Center City, Dolce Italian opens at 1439 Chestnut Street, housed on the ground floor of the new W Hotel Philadelphia.
Dorigato expresses Italian cuisine in its purest form with his bold yet straightforward, authentic, and seasonal menus. Signature Dolce classics range from handcrafted portions of pasta to elegant seafood risotto, meatballs over creamy polenta, and specialty Neapolitan pizzas. The bar showcases an extensive wine list and specialty cocktails such as a barrel-aged Negroni and Aperol Spritz.
Designed by Chris Sheffield of SL Design, the dining room offers a curated collection of mid-century modern furniture in a bright and energetic space, creating a communal and convivial dining experience.
In 2012, Dolce Italian opened its first location in South Beach at the Gale Hotel, where it received a three-star review from the Miami Herald. Dolce Miami was also awarded “Best New Restaurant” in 2015.
In 2018, Dolce Mare opened in Ocean Resort and Casino in Atlantic City. In 2021, Dolce will expand to Philadelphia in the W Hotel.
